Got a hot date? Check out these dresses for a fab night out. Some dresses are under $15!

Summery dresses for every budgetWhat I love about dresses is that they’re “insta-outfits.” You don’t have to worry about your top un-tucking, your skirt rolling around your waist, or tripping over the hem of your pants (I've done that!). It’s just one item that you slip on or zip up, throw on an accessory or two,and then you’re out the door! How awesome is that! And if you’re on a first date, the last thing you need to do is fiddle with your clothing….you’re nervous enough as it is, do you really want to also worry about a wardrobe malfunction?

Take a look at the dresses I've rounded up or you.  Some of them will take you from the office to a resto after work. It's always nice to get more bang for your buck.

Here's a quick style note: some of the dresses can be paired with a sweater, blazer or denim jacket, so you can extend the life of the  dress and wear it into another season.
